Sir don’t weep for me for I am not worthy

To be on my knees washing your feet

Lord please make him stay, so I can worship everyday

Give him thanks and praise, for he showed me the way

Offerings on the table by half past five

Offerings in the bedroom at half past nine

 

 

(PRAISE HIM) Praise his purdy mouth!

(PRAISE HIM) Praise his baby blues eyes!

(PRAISE HIM) Praise him when he comes to me!

(PRAISE HIM)  I am his prize!

 

I want to spread the word, the way he spreads my legs

Go forth, multiply, I will do my best

Please make me understand, mold me how you want

I am your clay to use day by day

And yours to command, show me your plan

Can’t wait to see, how you’re going to use me!

 

(PRAISE HIM) Praise his purdy mouth!

(PRAISE HIM) Praise his baby blues eyes!

(PRAISE HIM) Praise him when he comes to me!

(PRAISE HIM)  I am his prize!

 

I will bring you children to bounce on your knee

I will put you up on a cross, when you crucify me

Wake up early every morning make you toast and tea

I know you don’t mean it and I don’t mean make you angry

My love can set him free from the bonds that drive him crazy

I cannot run away now, I need him for the family

We also recently found out that my saxophone player Alex Price has a unique skill – knowing almost any post code of rural Queensland:

 

My second album Post-Apocalyptic Love Songs will be out in mid-June. Watch this space!
